Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Ten Former Gophers started Week 1 on NFL rosters. Here is a recap of how they did, and who they will face next week.

Eric Murray-DB Kansas City Chiefs

Week 1 vs San Diego Chargers

Murray recorded one special teams tackle in the Chiefs 33-27 OT win over San Diego..

Week 2 vs Houston Texans

Hopefully Murray can pick up some more stats next week.

Briean Boddy-Calhoun-DB Cleveland Browns

Week 1 vs Philadelphia Eagles

BBC was inactive for the Browns loss to Philly.

Week 2 vs Baltimore Ravens

Hopefully Calhoun will see some action in week 2.

De'Vondre Campbell-LB Atlanta Falcons

Week 1 vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Campbell got the start for the Falcons in week one and recorded four tackles including one for loss in the Falcons loss to the Bucs.

Week 2 vs Oakland Raiders

Hopefully Campbell can continue to build on his week 1 performance

Ra'Shede Hageman--DE Atlanta Falcons

Week 1 vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Hageman was inactive for the game against the Buccaneers. Falcons coach Dan Quinn said it was due to Atlanta’s plans to play a lot of nickel against Tampa Bay, however on Monday a story saying Hageman was charged with three misdemeanors including battery and interference with making an emergency call from an incident last March came out. Not good.

Week 2 vs Oakland Raiders

We shall see if Hageman plays this week against Oakland, or if being inactive becomes a trend.

Maxx Williams-TE Baltimore Ravens

Week 1 vs Buffalo Bills

Williams was active for the game against the Bills but did not record any stats as Dennis Pitta and Crocket Gilmore got the majority of snaps at TE for the Ravens

Week 2 vs Cleveland Browns

Hopefully Maxx can see some more action against the woeful Browns.

Damien Wilson--LB Dallas Cowboys

Week 1 vs New York Giants

Wilson was active but did not record any stats in the Cowboys loss to the Giants.

Week 2 vs Washington

Hopefully Wilson can see more time against the team from Washington.

Marqueis Gray--TE Miami Dolphins

Week 1 vs Seattle Seahawks

Gray recorded one special teams tackle in the Dolphins loss to the Seahawks.

Week 2 vs New England Patriots

Hopefully....well you know the deal

Eric Decker--WR New York Jets

Week 1 vs Cincinnati Bengals

Hey! Stats! Decker caught two balls for 37 yards including a 22-yard touchdown pass in the Jets loss to the Bengals. He also added a tackle on a Ryan Fitzpatrick interception.

Week 2 vs Buffalo Bills

Its a quick turnaround for Decker and the Jets as they play Buffalo on Thursday.

Tramaine Brock-CB San Francisco 49ers

Week 1 vs Los Angeles Rams

Brock recorded a tackle and a half in the 49ers win over the Rams

Week 2 vs Carolina Panthers

Oof...this could be ugly.

Marcus Sherels--CB/PR Minnesota Vikings

Week 1 vs Tennessee Titans

Sherels returned three punts for a total of ten yards and added a tackle in the Vikings win over Tennessee.

Week 2 vs Green Bay Packers

The Vikes open US Bank Stadium on Sunday night football.

Additionally David Cobb was added to the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad last week, so hopefully we may see him yet this season.
